The Faculty of Sciences at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) invites applications for a

W 2 Professorship for Systems Palaeobiology (Associate Professor)

at the Department of Geography and Geosciences, GeoZentrum Nordbayern. The professorship is a full-time and permanent position to be filled by the earliest possible starting date.
We seek to appoint an expert who will develop an internationally visible research and teaching profile in Systems Palaeobiology. Applicants will have a strong
background and an international reputation in Palaeobiology. The research should conceptually bridge palaeontological and geological, especially palaeoclimatological information and should address global processes using modelling approaches.
A focus on macroevolution (including phylogeny) or macroecology considering the impact of climate change is desired. We expect the appointed professor to actively participate in interdisciplinary collaboration and become involved in establishing joint research projects within GeoZentrum Nordbayern, the Department, the Faculty of Sciences, and the University. The duties of the successful candidate include active participation in the degree programmes (particularly the ‘Palaeobiology’ and ‘Earth Systems Research Lab’ areas of specialisation in the international Master’s degree programme).
